Four Tufts University swimmers have been named to the 2023-24 Academic All-District® Men’s Swimming & Diving Teams by College Sports Communicators (CSC). This award recognizes student-athletes who excel both in the pool and in the classroom. The recipients of this honor are graduate student Peter LaBarge and juniors Emmett Adams, Charlie Duffy, and Eric Lundgren. This is LaBarge’s second consecutive year receiving this recognition.

In order to be nominated, student-athletes must be key contributors to their team with a minimum 3.50 cumulative GPA at their current institution. Each team is limited to four nominations. The selected individuals must have competed in at least four competitions or placed in the top eight at a conference meet. Adams, Duffy, Lundgren, and LaBarge, who are majoring in psychology/clinical, human factors engineering, environmental engineering, and biology respectively, helped Tufts University finish ninth at the NCAA Division III Championships and as the runner-up in the New England Small College Athletic Conference under head coach Adam Hoyt.

The CSC Academic All-America® program recognizes swimming and diving athletes from NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, and NAIA separately. Academic All-District® honorees move on to the CSC Academic All-America® ballot. The first, second, and third-team Academic All-America® honorees will be announced on April 24.
